Thanks,(you did mean the cloth cover, not the snow cover) I've had it since the first winter we had the van. I already had a 2 car garage but only 7' high door. I didn't really have room for another garage for the van, so I found this for $400, and problem solved.

We're off out west to the mountain States in about 2 weeks.
We like coolish, but that's a bit overkill.

Jaysus, man!!!!
Scared the heck out of us, with our year's end trip to the mountains just
a few weeks away.
I did speak to a guy at the Good Sam call centre (Denver, CO) who said
we might not be able to get to Rocky Mtn NP in a couple more weeks
because they do get snow this early.
He said they'd close the roads in, if safety became an issue,
but I'm hoping we'll catch a break and get in there for at least
one night.

Going down to minus 10 C tonight and we're in the RV near Calgary. I haven't done any real winter camping so this is a crash course on it. The furnace just seems to want to run continously. All the exterior compartments are iced shut from highway muck. Darn near whiteout conditions on the Trans Canada 70 miles west of Calgary today.

It's time to head south!

Good Luck Mark. We drove through the ice storm of 1997/98. Our RV was nice and warm but having over an inch of ice all over the outside of the RV made things interesting. Just drive safe and have warm thoughts. Hopefully the cold will pass and things will get a little warmer.
